All set to enter the campaign with his ‘Pancharatna Yatra’ in Karnataka, the JD(S) decided to postpone it shortly after the event was flagged off in Mulbagal on Tuesday.
Former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said the yatra has been postponed due to heavy rainfall. The weather forecast indicated bad weather for the next few days.
The party had planned the roadshow ahead of parliamentary elections to be held early next year.
The yatra, including village quarters by Kumaraswamy, was flagged by JD(S) supremo HD Deve Gowda on Tuesday morning.
“As the rainfall increased, we decided to postpone the yatra, convention and village stay by a week,” Kumaraswamy said.
The yatra is now expected to resume next week from Mulbagal in Kolar district. The new dates will be announced in a few days.
